Georg Friedrich Händel: Agrippina HWV 6 (version concert)

On May 14 at 19:00 the Grand Auditorium will witness an imperial evening. The concert version of Händel’s opera Agrippina showcases a politico-erotic intrigue which already captivated the audience at the work’s Venetian premiere. As the conniving empress, the American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato is joined by Marie-Nicole Lemieux as Ottone and Franco Fagioli as Nerone. The young conductor Maxim Emelyanychev leads the ensemble il pomo d’oro. Cries of «Viva il caro Sassone!» greeted the composer at the premiere. 300 years later, the situation at the Philharmonie is likely to be quite similar.
